The Bolds is a pretty good book. The story is a quick-paced read and very funny. My favorite character was Mr. McNumpty because I could not figure out if he was a good guy or a bad guy untill the end. And the ending was a very good suprise. The things I liked about this book was that the author did a good job of making the hyenas seem like real people and did not make them different from the other characters. I thought that the jokes and humor in the book was engaging. My only suggestion would be that I would have loved to get to the "big problem" earlier in the book.
